Inconnu, which stands for "unknown" in french, is conceptually based around the idea of finding and exploiting the unknown beauty in the chaos of nature. One major interpretive theme is that of the microscopic, macroscopic, and melancholic world in which we are connected to holistically. That idea was expressed through the use of random molecule-esque sounds bits layered underneath turbulent, looming dubbed-out melodies flowing about a motion of beat (which in my mind reflects the animation of life). The overall emotion of the tracks as a whole is that of a stark, beautiful, melancholy which is how i subjectively view the state of world. These ideas and concepts as well as most all the track titles were derived from my reading the book "Chaos" written by author James Gleick. Zen Savauge

This is one of the albums that got me into the whole netlabel scene. Great for those rainy evenings where you don't have anything to do. I put the track Inconnu on my netlabel podcast (www.tuneintuneout.com)

Das Album Studies Of Lifeform In Transit (APL014), das Jason Corder als Off the Sky veröffentlicht hat, zählt zu einem meiner ganz heißen Favoriten. Inconnu reiht sich schön brav daneben ein und ist absolut empfehlenswert. Perfekte Basslinien, perfektes Knistern und Klickern - besser geht es wohl nicht mehr.

After a thousand times of listening
In netaudio-terms this is a rather old release but after listening to it over and over i must express my deep love for this recording.
Perfectly balanced out between the lowest and darkest ambient spheres and heavy grooving dub elements (especially the bass lines!), clickering and flickering, each track is a great late-night experience, no matter whether you're using headphones or not. Definitely one of the all-time-netaudio favourites!

One of Netaudios finest ...
Zen Savauvage is one of the aliases Jason Corder is hiding behind. His Netlabel debut album
"Inconnu" is, in my opinion, one of the primetime releases in the history of Netlabels, and, so far, highly underrated. In my opinion by far the best Subsource release. Slow, rather dark moving ambient dub moving along the dark Deadbeat sound ~Scape sound with heavy dubbasslines, crackling elements and field recordings. I couldn't
recommend it enough, and if you do eventually like it, you should listen to his Off The Sky album on Autoplate aswell.

So Good! Nice work tunes....
This is an excellent release. Deep sound waves and washes to mellow your mind. The layers and music drift softly while a mesmerizing click and ticks drive though. I listened to this EP while a work and it was terrific thinking music. Vast 3D aural sculptures that hover about while keeping you focused. I recommend this EP with a great set of headphones youll be launched into audio virtual reality.
